Patches found a new forever home

Patches and Smiley

Tejas and Patches

The new 3 Amigos

Rotary Club Annual Crawfish Boil
Saturday, April 30, 2005

That is what the announcement read that would change Patches’ life. Patches, you know, was not what you consider an easy dog to adopt. Patches is 8 years old - a senior when it comes to adoption, and a Black Dog on top of that, so he really had two adoption strikes going against her. But this would change....

After the adoption, our staff stayed in touch with the new family. And here is what they wrote about the new arrival. We are greatful for the follow-up and the pictures.

A happy ending indeed, which makes us realize again, how worthwhile our efforts are:

This dog is well mannered, obedient, happy, and has no anxiety or behaviour problems as stated in his record.
 He loves his new home and acts like a puppy again. Dogs know what they need and want, it's some owners that need the training. He's getting used to the cows that come to back fence.  The first one he saw (a large scruffy white bull) made all his hair stand up like a halloween cat. He didn't know how to use the dog door, then after he figured it out thought is was the coolest thing and went in and out for a couple hours.
Attached are some pictures.
